A water fight of sorts at Taco Bell led to a ticket for a 71-year-old Milwaukee man on July 14.
At 5:13 p.m., employees of the restaurant informed police that a man was filling up a clear water cup with soda at the soda machine. When confronted and told he’d have to pay for the soda, the man agreed. But upon hearing the price, he poured out the soda and slammed his cup on the counter, where it flew toward employees.
He was given another cup for water, but then started yelling obscenities at employees. He then filled the cup with ice and water and threw it at an employee.
After he left the restaurant, police contacted the man by phone and he admitted to losing his temper. He was cited for disorderly conduct.

 At 4:05 p.m. on June 29, police responded to a report of retail theft at Walmart.
The suspect, identified as a 38-year-old Saukville man, was about to leave the store when police asked him to remove all unpaid merchandise from his backpack, which included three PlayStation4 video games and one sub sandwich.
He also had an unpaid can of Pepsi, which he was drinking from.
He was arrested for retail theft.

At 1:51 a.m. on June 30, Police were called to the Kwik Trip store in reference to a report of a battery.  
The victim, a 25-year-old West Bend man, said he had been beaten up earlier at the bus stop located at Walmart. The man had numerous visible injuries, including scrape marks on his elbows, bloody marks on numerous places on his face and scrapes on his back and shoulder area.  
The man was transported to Aurora Medical Center in Grafton for his injuries.
Witnesses were able to get a vehicle description and license plate of the suspects, who were stopped by the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department. The suspects were a 19-year-old man and a juvenile male, both of West Bend, and both had marks on their hands consistent with being in a fight.  
Both admitted to the fight, but said that the victim charged at them first so they defended themselves.  
They were arrested and face battery charges.

At 2:08 a.m. on July 8, police stopped a  31-year-old Milwaukee man for going 39 mph in a 25 mph zone in the 400 block of East Green Bay Avenue. Police let the man off with a warning, but he insisted they give him a ticket, which they did.
He was also found to have a suspended license and a warrant through the Greenfield Police Department.
Police informed the man that he was able to sign a personal recognizance bond for the warrant, which he did.

At 6:57 p.m. on July 9, a man told police his car had been scratched with a knife at North Mill Street and Stoney Ridge Way.
The man said he was driving westbound on Highway 33 at Highway W when he noticed his friend, so he honked his horn and waved to him.  After this, he continued on Highway 33 until he got to North Mill Street, where he had to stop for a red light. A younger male on a bicycle pulled next to his vehicle on the passenger side and took a knife out of his pocket and scratched the side of the vehicle.  
Police observed two scratches, one being approximately six feet long and the other being approximately three feet long.  
The man followed the bicyclist and watched as he went into some apartments in the 300 block of North Mill Street.  
While looking for the suspect inside the building, a 21-year-old Saukville man identified himself as the culprit. He said the vehicle honked their horn at him and then “flipped him off,” which upset and scared him.  
He said he knew it was wrong and that he shouldn’t have done it.  
He was issued a municipal citation for criminal damage to property.

At 2:56 p.m. on July 17, a complaint about a car driving all over the road before turning into the Tri-Par gas station brought police to the scene, where police found the car parked over two spaces — one of which was a handicapped slot.
The suspect, a 26-year-old Glendale man, was seated in the driver’s seat with no shoes or socks on and was struggling to pull up his pants.  
As police approached the car, they could smell the odor of marijuana emanating from the rear passenger-side window. The driver informed police that he took prescription medication for anxiety, and appeared slow, lethargic and swayed while standing still.  
He failed sobriety tests, and police then found in his car prescription medication along with a green leafy substance that later tested positive for marijuana.  
The man admitted to smoking a “blunt” of marijuana.
He was transported to Aurora Medical Center for medical clearance, as well as a legal blood draw, and then was taken to the Ozaukee County Jail.
He’s been charged for second-offense operating under the influence, operating with a revoked license, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

At 3:21 p.m. on July 18, police were notified of a man who had stolen alcohol on two previous days from Beck’s Exxon gas station.
On both July 16 and 17, surveillance footage showed that each time he had stolen three bottles of Korbel Brandy by placing them in his pants.
Police later found that the man was on probation with the Department of Corrections and was identified as a 44-year-old Saukville man.
Beyond being arrested for the probation violation, he was cited twice for retail theft, which included $35.94 in restitution owed to the gas station.
